Surrounded by achievement
we waver in uncertainty
surrounded by wealth
we pause in insecurity
our hands upon the lever
we hesitate in perplexity

we look to take refuge
from the storm but could find
no way forward
no way backward

pounded and rocked
and buffeted
we cannot stand
as we sink in the more
and mud we created

we remember the cleft
in the rock,
the burning sand
the fire. We are saved
by the fire.
